Admiral Fallon stepping down

John McCain "giddy" over news:

The lone voice of sanity and restraint in the Bush administration's military is resigning, and possibly resigning America to an attack on Iran. Admiral William Fallon, the top U.S. military commander for the Middle East, is leaving that position effective March31. Fallon had vowed that an attack on Iran "will not happen on my watch."

When Fallon assumed command of Centcom one year ago, BushCo was noisily pounding the war drums and making a case for attacking Iran. Fallon calmly and deliberately pushed back against that effort. As the admiral stepped up his opposition to an Iran attack throughout 2007, friction with BushCo increased as well. It's been widely speculated that the admiral would be forced out this year, although his resignation seems to be of his own choice. An Esquire piece published just last week predicted that Fallon would be removed to make way for a general who was more "pliable" to war with Iran:

If, in the dying light of the Bush administration, we go to war with Iran, it'll all come down to one man. If we do not go to war with Iran, it'll come down to the same man. He is that rarest of creatures in the Bush universe: the good cop on Iran, and a man of strategic brilliance. His name is William Fallon, although all of his friends call him "Fox," which was his fighter-pilot call sign decades ago. [...]

You can be sure that John McCain is somewhere singing his favorite Beach Boys parody with that crazed smile upon his face. . .

They go to war with Iran and it will be the death of the Republican party and the Neocons better start digging a hole.
